Vanguard’s Gold Mastery Camo has been “ruined” in Warzone
Warzone players were delighted with Vanguard weapons’ white and gold Mastery Camo design, but the devs changed the design in the mid-Season 1 update and players claim they “ruined” it.
Gold Camo has long been the way for Call of Duty players to prove they’ve mastered a weapon, and Warzone is no different. Players were racing to get as many Vanguard weapons Gold and Diamond as possible ahead of the Warzone integration, and many were delighted with the battle royale’s unique take on the Gold Camo.
Rather than Vanguard’s black and gold design, Warzone featured gold with a swirling white overlay. However, the mid-Season 1 update changed it to Vanguard’s Gold, and players claim it “ruined” the camo.
It’s likely that Vanguard weapons’ white and gold design was an unintended texture bug that was fixed with Warzone’s mid-Season 1 update, yet it has split the community.
Popular Warzone YouTuber JGOD shared a side-by-side view of the new and old camo, saying “they really ruined the way the Vanguard Gold Camo looks in Warzone.”
YouTuber KRNG Hero revealed when the change happened: “they changed it since the mid season update and I’m like, why?”
Like why are they even changing this stuff? I just don’t understand why any manpower is being put towards working on THIS instead of the bugs.— XSET Loochy (@LoochyTV) January 19, 2022
The post was met with a ton of disappointed replies, with CoD content creator LoochyTV asking: “Why are they even changing this stuff? I just don’t understand why any manpower is being put towards working on THIS instead of the bugs.”
“Why do they change things that don’t need to be touched,” echoed LensEffect. “Like all these problems and they’re worried about the gold camo appearance.”

Not everyone preferred the old design though, with one player saying they prefer the new design because “it looks more like gold in Vanguard.” Another said that “the black and gold looks so much better, that white just looked cheap.”
Sorry agree to disagree the black and gold looks so much better, that white just looked cheap.— Toby Woolwine (@boozysheep) January 19, 2022
Raven Software have plenty of major issues listed in their Trello board such as Xbox players being unable to play and the dreaded Buy Station freeze glitch, so it’s unlikely they’ll change the camo back any time soon. But, you can never truly know what Raven have in store.
